Oil Change FAQs

You know it's important to change your car's oil. But do you know why oil changes are important? Do you know the difference between conventional and synthetic oil? Many drivers don't know the answers to these questions and sometimes forget to ask when talking to their service advisor, so we're answering these questions for you! Keep reading to learn more about oil changes.

What's the difference between synthetic and conventional oil?

Synthetic oil, as opposed to conventional oil, is refined and distilled. This process breaks the oil down into individual molecules that can meet the demands of some modern engines more efficiently. In addition, synthetic oils boast better performance and protection than conventional oils. 

How often should you change the oil in your vehicle?

You should change your oil typically anywhere between 5,000 to 10,000 miles. With the variety of synthetic oils available, many vehicles can drive longer distances with the same oil. Talk to your service technician about what's best for your vehicle. 

Why should I bring my vehicle to the dealership to have my oil changed?

If you change your own oil, props to you, because it's not easy. It's messy and takes time out of your day. You also need to have all the supplies on hand. If you're not used to doing it yourself, then it's much easier to trust our expert technicians to get it done efficiently.
